Finally… a weather event worthy of the phrase snowpocalypse!
I wasn’t a big fan using the phrase snowpocalypse because I thought it was overused and had too much of a hype quality, but when rare events like 49 of 50 states have snow on the ground, an event such as this might actually be worthy of such a buzzword since so many states are caught off guard.
For example, PBS NewsHour reported:
The city of Atlanta received 7 inches of snow, but only has 8 snow plows.
The weird thing — no one knows for sure just how rare of an event this is. That should give you some indication of its rarity.
